Halloween in our Living Room

Hello friends!

How was your weekend? I hope your enjoying the glory of Fall in your neck of the woods, as for us here in Southern Illinois, it's been touch and go so far - one  minute we have the cool crisp fall air, the next minute, it feels like summer again?! Crazy!

Anyhow, we had a small celebration for my hubs birthday last, last Saturday and of course, that kept me busy in a very good way, since I do love to celebrate for the most important man in my life, and believe me, he deserves this kind of celebration and even more. So again,
 Belated happy birthday to my best friend and one true love!

Ok, now back to regular programming, as promised, today I will be sharing with you our Halloween Decorations in our Living room!

Don't mind the pink chair behind - that's where Sophia's stuff are at. :-)
I used my Ikat pillows and Disney Mary Poppins pillow again along with some new orange pillow covers I scored from IKEA.

Simple coffee table/ottoman vignette

Switched out my lamps and added these super cute pillows on my chairs

I shared this on IG, can you guess how we made this pillow covers?
I'll share with you this quick DIY Pillow project on Thursday!

More simple than last year for sure

Mix of non-halloween and Halloween  stuff. I added webbing on the bottom part of the rails - super easy but adds a "crawly-feel" to the space!

Cut out mice comes back - they always do, year after year. I've had them since we moved
to this house in 2010, so you can say they are my "Halloween Pets"!!!!! ;-)

Spiders are also oldie "pets" of mine.

My console is all simple too 

Spray-painted a huge branch from a dead-tree black and just placed it inside my brass
bucket and filled it with gauzy fabric. Pumpkins and witches hat plate complete this simple set-up.

Simple Fall Mantel with faux pumpkins and  brass candlesticks

Had to remove the lampshades besides the sofa to avoid any possible mishaps for our little walker ;-)

I'm almost done sharing with you all the Halloween goodness in our home. 
On Thursday I will share with you very Simple DIY projects for Halloween then come Monday, my Top 10 tips for Affordable Halloween Decorating!
